Recently I downloaded a file which proceeded to install a tonne of unwanted crap on my computer. I deleted most of it via Add or Remove programs, but after doing some digging I found something a bit worse.
In Task Manager, I see this:
If I check Services, I find this:
'Cloud service of Eqghclamecult' is probably not something that's supposed to be there.
So I went to remove it from SysWOW64 manually (as far as I know, the only svchost you're supposed to have is in System32).
Trying to remove it got me this:
Can't seem to change permissions in order to delete it, Windows Defender doesn't recognize it as a virus either.
I'm also getting a tonne of popup windows, most of which Firefox blocks from opening, but plenty still get through. They appear even when I click on a blank part of a webpage where no link is present.
So yeah, any help would be great Thanks
